The mother of an 11-year-old girl who was shot in the head by her 31-year-old brother on Sunday before turning the gun on himself believes that the two formed a suicide pact before their death. 

According to the Daily Mail, Lilea ‘Lilly’ Stolworthy, 11, and her brother Jordan Brownlow, 31, both died of a gunshot wound to the head in Medical Lake, Washington, after both having multiple suicide attempts in recent years.

The children’s mother, Darel Stolworthy, told the outlet that Brownlow sent a text to the family group chat that said, “I’m sorry, please forgive me,” causing her to suspect they had agreed to die together. 

Court records obtained by the Spokesman showed that Lilly had run away from home around Thanksgiving. Her family then gave some of her things to Brownlow to hold onto. 

Lilly then returned home and wanted her items back, per court records, and went to Brownlow’s car to get them. Darel then went to investigate after Lilly did not come inside the house, only to then reportedly discover her dead in the street. The Spokane County Sherriff’s office said that a witness heard a gunshot and then saw Brownlow’s Ford Mustang leaving the area. 

He was then found 20 minutes later, slumped over in the front seat of the car with a pistol in his hand. He was pronounced dead at the hospital on Wednesday after being on life support. 

Lilly and Jordan were among the 12 children that Darel and her husband shared. Lilly was one of four who was adopted.
